This birthday card is one I made a while back, in fact I made it for a challenge but by the time I got around to photographing it the challenge had closed so I kind of forgot all about sharing it with you. But today I thought I would do just that.
I love all the FREEBIES that you get this time of year with Sale-A-Bration and one of my favourites this year is the Botanical Gardens Design Vellum Stack. Now most of the projects I have seen with this vellum have been using a floral theme (it makes sense really given that it is meant to coordinate with the Botanical Blooms Bundle) but I wanted to see if I could also get some non-floral cards from it … turns out you can!
This card has a Smoky Slate card base and I have teamed it with Mint Macaron and Whisper White. There is a strip of Vellum across the base of the card but I have also used the vellum to punch out all the little cupcakes with the cupcake punch in the Party Punch Pack. I found that the Fine Tip Glue Pen from Stampin’ Up! was just perfect for adhering the little cupcakes to the piece of Whisper White card stock. I also thought that the “make a wish” stamping in the Party Wishes stamp set from Stampin’ Up! really went well with the vellum print. A little cupcake with the top embossed in Iridescent Ice embossing powder was the perfect finishing touch.
